Leeks, magic beans & bronze fennel

Today came some much needed rain for the outdoor plants – and some unwanted wind but we will have to take it as it comes. I put in another set of seeds.  Leeks I sprinkled in a fairly deep container of compost – saw this at a farm walk in Rooskey and it helps to get lovely length on your young leeks before they go into the great big earth outside.  ‘Black magic runner beans’ from The Seed Savers in Co. Clare could be a bad influence on the rest of the seed table so will have to keep a close eye!  I also put in some bronze fennel, sweet rocket (supposed to yield lovely flowers), sorrel, and white & blue borage for the border garden.  I sowed one bed of beetroot seed outside.  We’re having a public garden walk on Thursday so lots of weeding and clean up too!

Lots of brilliant stuff happening food and community wise in Roscommon this weekend – http://www.roscommonlambfestival.com
